It was held at the beautiful Newport Dunes in sunny Newport Beach California. The cool yet sunny weather was perfect that day. The girls were so detailed in their planning for this fabulous event. As we checked in and got our name tags, whimsical pinwheels lined the walkway.
Around the corner there were refreshments and a snack bar that was filled all day. The tables were graced with creative centerpieces and place settings, personalized for every attendee.
The hosts took advantage of the gorgeous scenery and created a photo area filled with fun props and a lovely homemade Elevate banner.
Inside, there was a table filled with swag from all the amazing sponsors.
There was also dessert table decorated with colorful paper medallions and filled with yummy goodness. See that “EAT” sign in the back?? I won it!! Woo hoo!
The speakers were so inspiring. It was great personally meeting all these fabulous women!
We also had Nat and her husband from Take the Cannoli representing a great cause, Soul Hope. Sole Hope is a group of passionate, committed people who are putting closed toed shoes on African children, one pair at a time. We even got to help make shoes and got together for a shoe cutting event.
This video made by Lora from Lora Knight Photography says it all!
I had a great time and can’t wait for next year!
